Local Troop Gives Back

by Audry Kensicki on December 15, 2009

Area girl scouts are making sure local developmentally disabled residents have a good Christmas.

Girl scout troop number 60247 hosted the second annual Christmas dinner at Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church.

"We’re having a Christmas party for MRDD residents in Muskingum County," said Troop Member Emily Burdette. "Our troop leader’s daughter has MRDD too. We decided to help them for our silver award."

The troop played games with the residents and passed out prizes.

After dinner, there was a visit from a very special guest, Santa Claus, who made sure everyone got a Christmas gift.
